BAKER COUNTY: BLM temporarily closes campgrounds

(Release by the BLM)

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) continues to serve the public while doing our part to address COVID-19.
Following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and recommendations from state and local public health authorities, Vale BLM is temporarily closing its campgrounds to limit the spread of the virus. The health and safety of staff and visitors at these facilities is our number one priority.

Visitors may continue to enjoy BLM trails, launch sites, recreation areas, and open spaces while following the CDC’s guidance:
•Practice social distancing.
•Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
•Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
•Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Most importantly, please stay home if you feel sick.
Please “pack it in and pack it out,” as trash collection may be limited in some areas.
